However, he reluctantly had to visit after this extensive estrangement duration to inform her about a family tragedy; the demise of their father. That was his only crime for which he was tortured cruelly, apparently Shehbaz and others took the visit as an insult to their pride because he had told his wife, anyone from her side of relatives is unwelcome to their residence after they rejected accepting the forcibly consummated relation. Degrading video went viral on internet, in spite of that charges weren’t pressed and neither the arrests were made. Ikram alleged, the police is trying its best to protect miscreants instead of holding them accountable, that’s why they have been treating him contemptibly, depicting no concern whatsoever regarding the case, like it’s him who’s in wrong for living through the barbarous maltreatment.
